Akinlade Commiserates With Ogun NUJ Over Chairman’s Death
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Adekunle Akinlade has sympathized with the Ogun State chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) over the sudden death of its Chairman, Soji Amosu.
Newsmen reported earlier that the 53-year-old Amosu died on Sunday after a brief illness.
In a message made available to our correspondent in Abeokuta by his media aide, Azeez Adelani, on Monday, Akinlade said Amosu had been instrumental to the development of media practice in Ogun.
“I send my deep and heartfelt condolences to the Amosu family, the Nigeria media, particularly practitioners in Ogun State, friends, associates, and sympathizers on the demise of Comrade Soji Amosu, who has been so instrumental to media professional stakeholders and community development in Ogun State.
“As a family, we will miss Comrade Soji Amosu for his good character and unmatched professionalism. He was an erudite journalist with many years of experience, as he deployed his ingenuity towards promoting peace, unity and progress in the state,” the former House of Representatives member said.
The 2019 governorship candidate admonished his immediate family and associates to sustain his good deeds, while praying for his soul to find peace with his maker.
“We cannot question God over his death but, we are thankful he lived a fulfilled life. He is a massive fish that has gone out of the media ocean. It is my prayer that God will grant him eternal rest and grant his family, friends and associates the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. He will be sorely missed,” Akinlade mourned.
